Hi there! Today’s post is about all the products I finished last month. I don’t feel like doing a big intro, so here they are:
1 Salvador Dali Dalissime Eau De Toilette – one of my all-time favourite fragrances. I have another bottle in my stash. 😍
2 Garnier Pure Active Intensive Charcoal Scrub – another Garnier product I won’t repurchase. This scrub is too basic.
3 Boots Glow Banana Toner – not the best toner for me. I won’t buy it again.
4 The Body Shop Neroli Jasmin Body Lotion – one of the best body lotions ever. EVER. Unfortunately, this amazing fragrance has been discontinued. But I have 1 more body lotion, 2 shower gels and 1 eau de toilette with the beautiful Neroli Jasmin fragrance left in my stash! 😍
5 Garnier Skin Active Soothing Botanical Cleansing Milk With Rose Water – this cleanser is OK but not great. I wouldn’t buy it again.
6 Olay Complete Lightweight Day Fluid – an all-time favourite beauty staple. I would always be more than happy to buy this amazing moisturiser again.
7 Palmolive Aroma Therapy Absolute Relax – one of my all-time favourites! I have a few more of these!
8 Imperial Leather You Are My Sunshine Rainbow Rose & Raspberry Kisses Icons Shower Gel – a nice shower gel. A limited edition, unfortunately.
9 Treacle Moon The Honeycomb Secret Bath And Shower Gel – my husband loves this shower and bath gel just as much as I do. In fact, he’s been using most of it. A definite repurchase.
9 Palmolive Hidden Heaven Shower Gel – I love this shower gel! A definite repurchase!
10 Pantene Pro-V Miracles Silky & Glowing Biotin & Hydrolised Silk Protein Conditioner – not the best conditioner for my hair type. This shampoo and conditioner combo gave me crunchy hair. Its tagline could be “A crunch fest with every wash.” Repurchase? Absolutely not!
12 Morrisons Revive Pink Grapefruit & Basil Extracts Shower Gel – this shower gel is too basic. I won’t buy it again.
I did well again in August. Hopefully I can keep it up over the next few months!

Hi there! It’s the first day of a new month, so this means that today’s post is about last month’s beauty trash = November’s empties. I used a bunch of single use face masks, and you can read about my latest face mask finds if you click here. Now let’s look at the big bottles and tubs and…
1 Radox Blueberry Scent Bath Bomb (no photo) – this was a single-use bath bomb, hence no photo. I enjoyed this bath bomb, and I might buy it again.
2 Original Source Green Banana & Bamboo Milk Moisturising Shower Milk – this is a really nice shower gel! I’d buy it again, but unfortunately, it was discontinued.
3 Radox Muscle Relax Bath Salts With Peppermint Scent – I used them twice and didn’t care for them. My husband used most of these salts, but he also didn’t love them. I won’t buy these bath salts again.
4 Max Factor Pan Stik 12 True Beige – my all-time favourite foundation! I have a few more of these!
5 Superdrug Layering Lab Paradise Body Mist – I liked this one a lot, and I will buy it again.
6 Valjean Labs Restore Facial Serum – a decent serum. Not groundbreaking though. I won’t repurchase it.
7 Boots No7 Total Renewal Micro-Dermabrasion Exfoliator – this is a very nice product. I will buy it again, no doubt.
8 Patisserie De Bain Mango Sorbet Hand Cream – a decent hand cream. Repurchase-worthy.
9 Olay Regenerist Luminous Tone Perfecting Cream – this is the US version of the cream, and I didn’t like it as much as the UK version. This one isn’t very moisturising, unfortunately.
10 Palmolive Aroma Therapy Absolute Relax – an all-time holy grail shower gel. I have a few more of these.
11 L’Oréal Elvive Colour Protect Caring Conditioner – a very nice conditioner! I have another shampoo and conditioner combo in my stash.
12 Westlab Dead Sea Salt Soothing Bath & Shower Gel – a nice shower gel. I can see myself buying it again.
November wasn’t a bad month for empties. I hope I can keep the streak going and finish the year with at least 12 more products (aiming for a few more, though…). Fingers crossed!

Hi there! It’s the last day of the month – this means that today’s post is about my favourite products from this past month. Let’s start with the TOP 3 – and there’ll be honourable mentions too!
3rd place – Palmolive Aroma Therapy Morning Tonic, Sensual, Absolute Relax
Palmolive knocked it out of the park with these amazing shower gels. 11 stars!
Runner-Up – Global Beauty Care Anti Aging Collection Glycolic Acid Spa Treatment Mask
This glycolic acid sheet mask is the bomb! Brighter skin immediately! Wow!
WINNER – Danielle 2 In 1 Jade Dual Sided Facial Roller
This facial roller is my new favourite beauty tool. I use it daily, and it’s absolutely marvellous. I cannot imagine skin care without it.
Onto the honourable mentions! Farm Skin Mangosteen Balancing Sheet Mask is a wonderful mask – my fourth favourite product this month! I also enjoyed another mask from the same brand – Farm Skin Beet Moisturizing Sheet Mask. Tesco did a great with their Masking Reviving Orange Flower & Ginger Sheet Face Mask too.
Onto some non-mask favourites! Radox Mineral Therapy Sleep Aromatherapy Bath Salts With Lavender & Ylang Ylang are lovely. And Garnier Body Tonic Firming Hydrating Lotion is a very good body lotion for the warmer months!
And this is it for August. I enjoyed so many new products this month that I found it hard to limit myself to these! So yes, August was a great month for new products. Thanks for stopping by today!

Hi there! Today’s post is about 3 of my all-time favourite shower gels – Palmolive Aroma Therapy Morning Tonic, Sensual and Absolute Relax.
Palmolive Aroma Therapy Morning Tonic with tangerine and lemongrass is one of the most amazing green shower gels ever. It’s refreshing, but also sweet and warm at the same time. It smells like a summer holiday in Italy. 11 stars!
Palmolive Aroma Therapy Sensual with Moroccan rose and ginseng is another incredible shower gel. It has a beautiful, warm, rich – yet transparent – rosey fragrance. I think “Sensual” is the perfect name for this shower gel.
Palmolive Aroma Therapy Absolute Relax with ylang ylang and iris is the ultimate purple shower gel. It smells like the perfect mix of velvety leaves and white tea. It’s simply stunning!
My husband loves all of these shower gels too. So whenever I start using any one of these, he puts his man shower gel aside and “helps me” finish the Palmolive one! 😁
If you’re interested, Palmolive Aroma Therapy Morning Tonic, Sensual and Absolute Relax are available as 250ml each. The first 2 have been discontinued, but can still be found online. The third one is fortunately still available in drugstores and supermarkets. I hope that it’ll be around forever, and that the other ones will be reintroduced at some point so I can stock up!

1 Herbal Essences Moisture Balance Conditioner – a holy grail product. I have plenty of back-up!
2 Original Source Skin Quench Blackcurrant & Moringa Oil Moisturising Shower – this is a nice one! I’d like to buy it again, but it’s been discontinued. I think I’ve seen one more bottle in my stash.
3 Original Source Pink Grapefruit Shower – a really nice shower gel too. Also discontinued. I do have some back-up though.
4 M&S Fragrance Collection Mimosa & Bergamot Eau De Toilette – this is a decent fragrance, and it was nice while it lasted, but I wouldn’t buy it again.
5 Sanctuary Spa Foaming Bath Soak (travel size) – I liked this bath soak a lot, and I’d like to buy the full size.
6 Revlon Nail Care Base Coat – a decent base coat. I would buy it again.

9 Imperial Leather Beautiful Indulgence Rich Moisturising Body Wash – I like this one a lot too. Also discontinued. 😦 But I have one more bottle.
10 Boots Ingredients Glycolic Acid Toner – this is a very basic toner. I won’t buy it again.
11 Olay Anti-Wrinkle Face Wash With Exfoliating Particles – this is a nice cream wash. Definitely repurchase-worthy.
12 Poundland #6 Anti-Ageing Retinol Facial Serum With SPF 25 – this is a very good serum which I aim to buy again soon!
This is everything I emptied in July. Have you tried any of these products or would you like to try them? Which products have you said goodbye to recently? Feel free to get in touch, and thanks for reading! x
